're a 501 c 3 and you're afraid of the irs, go ahead and defy the irs. >> we saw people stand up in texas. >> we must challenge today's post-modern culture. >> pro-abortion activists chanted "hail satan." >> it's going to kill, potentially destroy the base of the country. >> you saw it from the last election. they didn't want to vote for president obama but at least he went out and talked to him, at least he went out and spoke about them. we didn't do that. we marginalized them. >> senator santorum wants the president to go out and talk to working people. what is he going to say? why a gop opposes an increase in the minimum wage. if you're a woman, forget about making your own decisions on just about anything and they want to take away your health care. let's face it, this is the future of the republican party. it's no different from the past. the grand old party is exactly that, old, white and pre-dom nanly male. no matter how hard they try to say they're trying to reach out to minorities, they can't escape their base which means they probably can't win a national election. joining me no

difficult situation for house republican leaders. i was in iowa with ted cruz of texas and he had the activists out there enthralled by the idea of a government shutdown. but boehner doesn't want that. he was part of the gingrich war in the '90s. they are trying to talk them away from doing a shutdown and maybe use the debt limit as a way to get concessions in the past as another battlefield. >> so we're going to go from defund to delay? >> still brinks manship but they think it's a better battle. this is a bigger story of house republican leaders that can't control their owner members. the boehners of the world, they are not he had looking the discussion. >> you know, it also seems like it's broader than just in the house because you've got republicans like ted cruz who is a potential, we know, a political contender in 2016. he's going to take part in the heritage tour and do a town hall in dallas on tuesday. you even had mitch mcconnell wobbling a little bit saying -- he wasn't saying anything and now admits that defunding won't work. on top of it, you have ceo saying that the h

to the people. >> god help us if he ever does get to be anything more than the senator from texas. >> it is going to tick a tsunami and i'm going to do everything i can to encourage that tsunami. >> let's let the man with grass roots common sense. then watch america go, my friend. >> we are going to take back america. >> i have people who we want to take our country back. >> take it back where? where are we going? >> republicans have to do something we haven't done in a long time. >> we have to protect our phony bologna jobs. we must do something about this immediately, immediately, immediately. >> this fight is likely to heat up in the month of september. that's going to be when the battle is engaged. >> in case you haven't heard, texas senator ted cruz is a man on a mission. he wants to take away your healthcare, even if that means bringing down government or war with within the government. >> fair stoking is reminiscent of another senator, a man from wisconsin on his own mission. he also wanted to take his country back then it was from the communist who supposedly infiltrated i

and the crazy stuff going on in texas and north carolina. the war on women is putting up probably the best known woman in the world and having a hand come out and slap her and having the republican party sponsor that. i would that be doing this if i were in his place. it is really stupid. you should be calling this out instead of encouraging it. >> i should clarify that it is a republican anlt hillary pac. but as the cheryl of the party it seems to me, if you're going to use what little bully pulpit you have to do something, rather than making these false, hollow threats, could you actually do some good and say, hey, violence against women is bad. >> he can help himself and the party here but he won't. they haven't been able to do it. the problem is the conservative pacs, the koch brothers and all those people, everybody is so beholden to them, they're terrified of them. until they stand up to them i don't think they'll win any republicans. >> thank you. >>> next, detroit may be the canary in the coal mine but how can it be that banks are too big to fail but our cities are on their own. this is

in just the south. last things are happening in texas and florida and we know how to run races and win them from the south. like to georgia, up to kentucky, down to louisiana. those are places where we believe that the policies really do matter for the people and sometimes you see the loonicy of what is happening in the far> now and many people are suffering. so we believe that opportunity for great policies, leadership and right action will matter and we believe the southern progress fund will make the difference. >> i also want to talk about other initiatives that i know you will be working on in terms of voter registration and i'm assuming helping to make sure we get people to the polls, which one of the big things we have seen as a barrier have been voter id laws and other forms of voter suppression. talk about that part of what you are going to be working on. >> we saw the supreme court's ruling the last month or so. and i never really felt that sitting in marbled halls in the highest court of the land really qualified you to know the ne fa things. so we put together c 14 making s

the authorization should be written. he does come from texas. a very strong pro military state. so it will remain to be seen if ted cruz is there for the vote. that's an open question. the other thing is the president is boxed in by not only the calendar now but by the prospect that he won't win the vote. we are told by the white house briefers, he will take military action. there is the military side of it. we know that the chairman of the joint chiefs, martin dempsey, was not in favor of this from the get-go. you have five warships prepositioned. we're spending money. you have men at the ready. on the front lines in these ships in the persian gulf. you have two carrier ships and some were due to rotate out. but they're turned back or held over. what is the rotation there? what is the rhythm of the military? what are the costs for them? and i have to say because of the optics of this, after announcing this pullback, the president and the vice president at this hour are golfing here in washington. >> yeah. >> a lot of people are going to ask questions that. >> i don't disagree. i was a little sur

. and alabama, in texas, in north carolina, they're also trying to restrict reproductive rights. trying very, very hard basically to outlaw abortion for any reason at all. that doesn't exactly woo women to the party. so it doesn't matter what those post mortems have said. the base seems insistent on having a smaller and smaller tent. >> and you know, governor, switching gears a little bit here. the fight that we're seeing play itself out within the republican base is this idea about whether or not to shut down the government over obamacare. and we know that will be a big showdown this fall. grover norquist told al hunt on bloomberg that he thinks obama will cave and delay obamacare to avoid a shutdown. as both sides in the gop fight over the shutdown, they're basically digging in. which seems to me that it really underscores more of a narrative of incompetence, and that even with their own pollsters have said, what they pointed out yesterday, shutting down the government is the one way that republicans can turn obamacare from a political advantage to a political disadvantage in 2014. >> righ
